I had this kind of issue back in the Qt 4.8 days

>From what I remember, the issue is that the QComboBox does not consume
the "return pressed" event.
So the event propagates to the QDialog which handles the event by
"pressing" the default button and closing itself.
The only solution I found was to filter the "return pressed" event,
using an event filter (`QObject::installEventFilter()`)
so that it does not reach the QDialog.
